Let's just get this out of the way: Yes, Quantum Conundrum is a first-person puzzler, just like Portal. Yes, it was designed by Kim Swift, the project lead on Portal. And yes, it shares some of Portal's core traits: there's a physics-altering arm...

Quantum Conundrum is a wacky Portal-like puzzle game centered around a weird science contraption that switches dimensions. It's whimsical, fun, well made, well written, it controls well, and it's a blast to play. It's almost flawless. The puzzles...

Portal tarzı oyunlarla uğraşmayalı bayağı bir vakit geçti. Bu oyunlar size her ne kadar roket bilimi tarzında problemler sunmasa da, gayet eğlendiren ve bazen düşündüren bir yapıları vardı. Başta Portal olmak üzere; bu tür, oyunculara kendini sevdirmeyi...
